Eggmanland is an energy refinery designed to resemble an amusement park with lethal attractions created by Dr. Ivo "Eggman" Robotnik as part of his plan to harvest and refine the energies of Dark Gaia unleashed during the Shattered World Crisis.
Conception and Creation
Ever since his plans to conquer Mobotropolis and establish his own empire, Dr. Eggman had always intended to build his vision of a mechanical utopia he dubs Eggmanland (or Robotnikland). However, his attempts to do so have always been stopped by Sonic the Hedgehog and his allies. (VG: StHs)
After determining that Dark Gaia's raw power was a source of energy more abundant than even the Power Rings-though not exceeding the limitless energy of the Chaos Emeralds-Dr. Eggman determined to harvest it for his own uses. Due to his own eccentricities, he decided to construct a refinery that incorporated death-trap thrill rides into its design, something that Orbot felt was a waste of time and resources. Eventually he succeeded and a alternate version of Eggmanland was born, and it soon began harvesting Dark Gaia's energy, the goal being that it would be used to supercharge the Death Egg. However, his operations attracted the attention of Wendy and Walter Naugus, who invaded Eggmanland with the aid of their Witchcarters. (StH: #266, #276)
- Eggmanland first appeared in the game Sonic Unleashed.
- However, building Eggmanland has been mentioned in many games prior to Sonic Unleashed as being one of Dr. Eggman's ultimate goals.
- Eggmanland possibly served as inspiration for some major locations throughout various sonic-related media. Such as Robotnik Land in Adventures of Sonic the Hedgehog animated series and even Robotropolis.
